To discuss how both nations are engaging in Ukraine, the U.S. Ambassador to Poland joined the UVA Centre for Politics.
Although there are oblique signals of progress, according to Ambassador Mark Brzezinski, international diplomacy has not yet succeeded in delivering peace to Kyiv.
US Ambassador to Poland
The American ambassador to Poland was invited to the University of Virginia Centre for Politics on Thursday for a Q&A in collaboration with other academic units.
UVA and the ambassadorship have a shared past. Graduate of the UVA Law School, Ambassador Mark Brzezinski participated in a discussion with Stephen Mull, current Vice Provost for Global Affairs and former U.S. Ambassador to Poland.
- The U.S. Ambassador to Poland joined the UVA Centre for Politics.
- The men discussed Poland’s position on the conflict in Ukraine.
- Poland is now able to support Ukrainians throughout the war.
The men discussed Poland’s position on the conflict in Ukraine. The conflict zone is only a few hundred kilometres away from Warsaw, Poland, where Brzezinski made the call.
“Poland is a typical nation. Both companies and schools are in session. Poland is not tense and uncertain, the speaker claimed.
Poland, he claimed, is dependable and strong due to its NATO membership, and it is now able to support Ukrainians throughout the war.
The Polish people would support Kyiv’s efforts and demands, the ambassador emphasised again and time again, highlighting the power of the Polish and Ukrainian peoples.
“The most common response is “as long as it takes as long as we need to.” They are our neighbours, and if they fall apart, we will too, Brzezinski said.
